When the Bough Breaks is a collection of paintings accompanied by poetry and the written word that embrace the tree — materially and conceptually — through figure and metaphor, analysis and allegory, and as record and reflection. Facing ongoing human conflict and impending climate catastrophe, the reality or representation of trees can offer solace and space — for the necessity of talking and listening. Artists include Patricia Bellan-Gillen, Zoë Charlton, Denise Burge, Ellen Harvey, Alex Lukas, Clayton Merrell, Sarah Slavick, and Susanne Slavick.
